Elise and I went to Philip’s apartment on Friday night after not having seen Philip in months. Rob (Philip’s roommate) came home from work and we all stayed up and watched I, Robot, The Chronicles of Riddick and then we watched Rob play Grand Theft Auto and eat tortilla chips.
We didn’t get home until around 3 a.m. and slept until around 10:30. We went to Hoover’s for chicken fried steaks – after a late night, we needed hearty comfort food.
After lunch we went out for more Christmas shopping. We found one of the items we were looking for but had to head back to the house because Elise had to drop off a catering that evening. I went out to the backyard and pulled up our garden. After her catering, Elise came home and we stayed in and watched TV.
I woke up early on Sunday and washed all the vehicles. We went to Best Buy, Sam’s and Central Market to get more Christmas presents, then home to get ready for El Arroyo’s Christmas party.
The Christmas Party was held at some bar (I can’t remember the name of it for the life of me) adjoining the Spaghetti Warehouse. The party was fun – we apparently missed all the fun because Elise and I were to old fogies who left relatively early. We heard that people fell off of bar stools and a few people were even fired. Too bad we missed all of that!
Monday morning came early. I went into the office and dealt with e-mails and phone messages that had accumulated over the weekend. I found it hard to get anything done because this week is a short week for me. I’m working tomorrow and then that’s it!… I’m taking the rest of the week off and Elise and I are off to Des Moines on Thursday morning.
